Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "The Roman Republic" by USHistory.org.
“The Roman Republic,” is an informational text that recounts the history of the Roman Republic: how it was formed, how it worked, and how it eventually transitioned into the Roman Empire.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Justice, Freedom & Equality as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
"Which is more important: freedom or security?"
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this informational text at home:
- What was "The Roman Republic" About
- What did you learn about?
- Watch The Roman Empire. Or Republic. Or...Which Was It?: Crash Course World History #10 at home with your child.
